The Canisius women’s basketball team plays its final games of the regular season this weekend in the Koessler Athletic Center. On Friday (February 24), the Griffs meet Manhattan at 7 p.m. On Sunday (February 26), recent Canisius Hall of Fame inductee Gina Castelli and her Siena Saints come for a game at 2 p.m.
Friday is the annual Breast Cancer Awareness night. Originally branded as a Pink Zone event, it has been changed in honor of legendary coach Kay Yow to “Play for Kay.” For additional info on the initiative, click here (http://www.kayyow.com/Play4Kay). Donations will be accepted at the game and the first 150 women in attendance will receive a complimentary pink cap, courtesy of New Era.
Senior day festivities will not be held Sunday because coach Terry Zeh has no seniors on his Golden Griffin roster. However, the bookstore is sponsoring Fan Appreciation Day with plenty of prizes available throughout the game.
